Chocolate Avocado Pudding

I have been hearing about chocolate pudding made from avocado for some time but have never made it.  Recently a friend commented that he had more avocados than he knew what to do with so I suggested this chocolate pudding.

He said it was good so I figured I would give it a try. Who would have thought a pudding made out of avocado could have the same consistency as traditional chocolate pudding?  I liked it and the kids ate some and generally liked it but we all felt it was slightly bitter so next time I will use raw cocoa powder (I only had the regular on hand) as suggested in the original recipe or increase the agave/decrease the cocoa powder slightly.  You can adjust according to your own taste.

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

1 avocado pitted and removed from the shell
1/3 cup agave syrup
3 tbsp cocoa powder (preferably raw)
1/2 cup water
2 tsp vanilla

In a blender mix all ingredients until smooth and the consistency of pudding.  Refrigerate and serve.


  1. Lee, next time use a few dates to add some sweetness.

  2. I made this as a healthy alternative for my sick son, who only wants to eat pudding the past few days. Do you mind if I post this recipe on my own blog?

  3. Lindsay- I do not mind at all! I would love it if you would link back- I am all about sharing good food!

  4. I think I've figured it out... we reduced the vanilla to 1/2 tsp. and I think that did the trick. But then I found it a bit too sweet, so I'm going to reduce the agave a bit next time.

  5. Also just wanted to mention that a friend of mine suggested adding icing sugar to use it as cake frosting. Haven't tried it, but am pretty sure it would work... though might be too sweet??

    1. I think that would definitely work! Actually, I really like that idea! I may have to make a cake now :)
